Description Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-07-22 17:41:21 EDT
When selecting a proportional font (like Adobe Times) for gnome terminal,
_lots_ of extra white space shows up.
Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2000-07-24 12:07:02 EDT
The only way proportional fonts make sense is to add padding to each character
to emulate a fixed width font; this is what xterm does. I'll send the bug
upstream, but even if it's fixed I'm not going to put the patch in Winston 
because it will almost certainly require significant code changes and
potentially introduce instability.

Upstream as http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=57442
